28C3 – Bring your r0ket

When packing for 28C3, don’t forget to bring your r0ket! (and a micro-USB cable!)

Among other things there will be a multiplayer tetris game on an LED wall you can play with your r0ket and new m0duls to boost your r0ket into new heights.

To access all new features of your r0ket have a look at http://r0ket.badge.events.ccc.de/init

The update contains an improved mesh network, l0dables for interactive installations and support for the next flame generation.

Good news for those who didn’t get one on camp – or want more: Team r0ket will be selling new, slightly improved r0kets for 30 Euros and RGB flame m0dules for 10 Euros on 28C3.

They will also bring several USB missile launchers for a hardware hacking competition – the goal is to combine the missile launcher with your r0ket. If you are one of the first 100 people to publish a cool hack, you can keep the launcher for free!

For more information on the r0ket badge and current updates on where to get one during Congress see http://r0ket.badge.events.ccc.de

    Is it possible to get a r0ket if I’m only virtually at congress? Asked otherwise, would you ship them or should I better ask one who is in Berlin to catch one for me?

    Lauscher, cM:

    There will be some r0kets on sale at pollin.de – but they will be probably more expensive than 30 Euro.

    Just keep an eye on our Twitter-Account (http://twitter.com/#!/r0ketbadge) for updates.
